I took this portrait of my grandmother Mildred Avery in 2006. I was looking to create a graphic for Mildreds Daughters' Urban Farm using this photo of her with a seed placed floating just above her palms. The seed would represent the future. This shoot ended up being my last set of her before she passed on. I took photos of her throughout my adult years. She was always a willing subject and would do any strange thing I requested. If you click through you will see her gamely holding a marrionette to her chest for me in a photo from the nineties.
